My husband and I hired Jen to prepare a "heavy apps" cocktail party for about 20 people. It (and she) was incredible! Her food was impeccable, flavor and presentation couldn't be beat. My personal favorites were her chicken pot pie cupcakes and shrimp scampi skewers. Lots of options and trust us, no one left hungry! We will absolutely have Jen back and I have given her information to a couple of my guests for their future parties. Honestly, you won't be disappointed!

Daniel & his team made it possible for us to host the party we all want to create for our friends & family. An evening cocktail party followed by dinner, where every single dish was exemplary and relished by all. The feast followed our guests with no fuss as dishes were relocated in response to the beautiful weather making it possible for the party to spill outdoors. Their service was extraordinary but the food had everyone wanting more.

Extremely professional, never had to ask for next course, very clean which is impressive since we did have barbecue meatballs, no sloppy messes. We have hot appetizers through out the party (2hrs.). As for the future, COME BACK!

Julie catered our party for 75 people. Not only did she bring delicious food, just as described, but she spent at least a half an hour setting up the fruit and cheese display--it was stunning. She was easy to work with, had great menu suggestions, was prompt, professional and friendly, and surpassed our expectations.

My company has used Hostess Catering for dinner 4 nights a week for over year. They are flexible, professional, creative and dependable. It's very hard to satisfy a large group every night with many different tastes, diets and eating habits. These ladies always come up with a fun menu every week that appeals to meat lovers and vegetarians. Hostess even catered our Holiday Party in December of 2014 and did all the planning from menus to table settings to waitstaff. They worked hard and I looked like a Super Star! These women do a knock out job and no job is too big for them to handle.

William catered our family style wedding reception for 170 people at a private venue and we could not be happier. Not only is the food he cooks amazing, the service he provides is second to none. Prior to reaching out to William, we had been working with another larger, better known, and well-reviewed catering company. They turned out to be entirely unhelpful, unwilling to offer alternatives to help keep our budget manageable and did not take kindly to any requests outside their standard menu and offerings. After eating the deposit on our first caterer, we gave William a call and he provided the exact opposite experience. From our first phone call until after the event was over, he was wonderful to work with. He helped us with crafting a menu, determining alcohol volume (we had a backyard wedding), cocktail and reception layout, and even timeline. He was always very quick to respond, made extremely helpful suggestions, worked around our schedules (and held the tasting in our apartment), accommodated changes to dishes to make sure we got exactly what we wanted, provided more food (and rentals!) for far less money than other caterers we assessed, and had an extremely professional service staff. After it was all over, he put some leftover food in our fridge and my wife and I were able to enjoy it again for dinner the following night with a bottle of champagne. If you're looking for a caterer that really cares not only about the food that he cooks but also about you and making your event amazing, you've already found him.

Lori, her partner Sam and her staff made my small event seamless. Lori and I were able to effectively communicate via email and text a half a dozen times in the span of 17 days which proved a tremendous value for me in terms of my time and energy. The team were prompt, professional, friendly, anticipated my needs and stayed on top of everything all night. They met and exceeded all my expectations and received rave reviews from my 50 guests. Chef Jim and Crew Debbie and Jim - I welcome you back anytime. It was so much fun to work with you. Chef Jim - The food and presentation was awesome and abundant. Thank you! Debbie and Jim - thank you for staying on top of the time and making it effortless for me to stay on schedule and stlll be able to enjoy the party with my guests. I look forward to working with all of you again.

It was a cocktail and appetizer party for 12 people. Everyone loved the food! We had plenty left over for folks to bring home! Price was great. It will definetly use SYB Catering again because Soraya was so professional and accomodating...she came and set everything up an hour before the start date and cooked several apps on premise...it was great. And again, the the food was awesome!

Renee Scharoff is a world class chef with a client base that reflects this from both here and abroad. Renee has been our personal chef for a number of years having pursued a relationship with her after an event we attended where she catered. Her culinary repertoire is sophisticated, inventive and always savory. Importantly, this is coupled w/ a keen perception of individual tastes and health considerations. She is extremely talentd, reliable and flexible adapting to need: personal chef, dinner parties, holiday event deliveries or formal events. I can think of nothig that would not have her meet the highest of standards. We live in Brookline, Mass.

Food was all delicious and Martin Malone did everything necessary to help us create a multi-cultural experience for our guests from Boston, Philadelphia, NY, California, India and in between.

Working with Natural Foods was an absolute pleasure. From the initial contact through to the end, it was so easy. I was looking for a caterer for my housewarming party of 60. I really appreciated the focus on sustainable & seasonal. I was able to give Mr. Sawicki the framework of what I was looking for and he created such a unique & varied menu, I really felt like he listened and delivered on the party I was trying to create. My friends raved about the stuffed figs and amazing entrees! (the fish was amazing!) It was so easy to enjoy my party and so stress free. Professional, unique and you could see all the special touches. Natural Foods will be catering more of my parties, now I just need to have more reasons for parties!

I am so glad that I found Chef Michael Haigh to do the catering for my birthday party. He did not disappoint in any way. From beginning to end Michael was a pleasure to work with, very flexible and professional in arranging for the best menu for the birthday meal, and then in delivering on the delicious meal.

Oh my goodness, Deirdre was incredible!!!! I hired Slavin in the Kitchen for my sister's 50th birthday party. After interviewing a few caterers I knew Deirdre Slavin was the caterer for us. She was professional and explained everything up front, so there were absolutely no surprises. Now onto the food! Since we just did hors d'oeuvres she served an array of dishes. From the duck confit tarts to the Spanish meatballs, mini crabcakes with lemon aoili, we were thrilled. I could go on and on, the food was that good, it was truly amazing!!! My family considers themselves to be serious "foodies" and man did she deliver. She runs an extremely tight ship and right to the last minute Deirdre and her staff were efficient and extremely pleasant to work with. I highly recommend her for your next big event!!!

Food was amazing! She was amazing! I really didn't know what I wanted and she help me through figuring out what would work for my dinner party of 10. I also have some complicated food restrictions and she very willingly work around them. We ended up with an awesome three course meal. Most important she was able to go with the flow, if I didn't have something she needed she worked around it, when guests hadn't pretold me what they don't eat she worked around it. Everyone had a great time and it was because of the food and the service. Highly recommended!!

There is not enough space in this review to describe how amazing Savio and his team are! My husband and I are so grateful to have found Events by BH for our wedding. Savio and his team were beyond helpful in the wedding planning process, helping us with tips and ideas for everything! Our tasting was delicious and Savio prepared so much food. It made selecting our passed hors d'oeuvres and plated dinner even harder. Everyone at our wedding was impressed by the food, some commenting that it was the best food they ever had at a wedding. Savio also introduced us to our florist and wedding planner, Jennifer Josserand of Boston Event Diva’s, as she is the coordinator for Events by BH. I cannot recommend Savio and Jennifer enough, they made wedding so easy and stress-free. They made our day perfect and more beautiful than we could have imaged. The food was delicious and cooked to perfection. The wat staff was wonderful and accommodating. Our wedding day was perfect thanks to Events by BH! You cannot find a better wedding caterer!
